Join all the fun in the Children’s Triathlon! July 4, 2016
About the Triathlon
The Children’s Triathlon includes running, biking, and swimming. Children will bike from one park gate on Afton (the road that goes through the park itself) to the other gate on Afton and back. Then, they jog around the park and to the pool, where they swim one length. The swimming portion will be done in heats with children “racing” against others in their own age group. There are lifeguards to help if needed.
The triathlon is ideal for children 6 to 12 years old. We have had participants as young as 4 or 5 years old, although they had experience with swimming. Participation is at the discretion of the parent or guardian.

Divisions for Triathlon
The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place boy and girl in each age category will receive a medal, but overall, this triathlon is more about the fun and experience, than the competition itself.
Typically, the triathlon is grouped by the following ages: 6-7, 8-9, 9-10, 11-12. We do reserve the right to make adjustments based on the participants present.
